Okay... maybe that is an exaggeration but that is how I feel! :)
I just have to be honest and say that there are several factors in my lack of blogging/blog hopping!
First excuse is just Life! Life has been busy and hectic and crazy for many reasons! Second excuse is that I have just been burned out! I felt like I had let my priorities get mixed up and I am still not sure that I have those straightened out. There just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything that I want/need to do! And lastly... on the blogging front... since the recent Paper Crafts rule change of not submitting anything seen on your blog before.... that has really cut down on what I have to blog. I am assuming it is still okay to post things you plan to submit to CARDS but if it is anything that I think I might submit at some point to either... I have not posted it. So... since when I do get some crafting time in... I am usually working on something for a call... then that doesn't leave a lot to blog. It leaves me with cards that I don't like a whole lot! So... what's a girl to do!?!?!
Well... I am not sure yet! I am going to have to figure that out! I do know that I miss blogging and I miss blog hopping and keeping up with my blog friends! I am reminded of that every time that you guys visit me and especially when I have a prayer request and I know that I have some great women out there lifting me up in prayer!
So... I am here to say that I am going to try and get back in the game! :) I have thought about as a way to start a new chapter... doing a blog makeover. However... since I would need some professional help... that may have to wait. I am not sure how much something like that costs so... if you know and wouldn't mind sharing... please do! I am also thinking about taking my blog list off of my blog except for some manufacturer/magazine/challenge blogs. I think I am going to try Google Reader again (wasn't a fan the 1st 2 times I tried to use it) for the rest of my blogs that I want to keep up with. I need to update my list and add some new friends, etc and my list keeps getting longer and longer on my blog!
Anyway... just felt like sharing! :)
Now... if you want to see a couple of cards... here are a few.
I have started playing around with my Cricut and have to say that I have enjoyed using it. I am still trying to figure it out but I at least took the first step of trying it! :)
Well... I guess I will quit talking now! I have had a semi-productive day today around here but there are a few more things that I need to do before I can craft or go to bed so I better get after it!
Peace and Love!
